Feds say man driven by hatred of Jews pleaded guilty to all charges after deadly 2019 assault on Cal

Source: CNN

(CNN)A Southern Californian man who previously pleaded guilty to state murder and attempted murder charges following a 2019 attack on a synagogue in San Diego pleaded guilty Friday to federal hate crime charges, according to the Justice Department.

"The defendant entered a synagogue with the intent to kill all those inside because of his hatred for Jewish people, and days earlier used fire in an attempt to destroy another sacred house of worship because of his hatred for Muslims," Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said in a statement.
John T. Earnest of Rancho Penasquitos pleaded guilty to a 113-count hate crimes indictment, the statement said. Prosecutors said the plea agreement includes a recommended sentence of life in prison plus 30 years.
In addition to the synagogue attack on April 27, 2019, Earnest admitted he tried to set fire to the Dar-ul-Arqam mosque in Escondido, California, on March 24, 2019, the Justice Department said.

3. Yes. Exactly as it should be. Do you think they should all get LIFE? Execution?

Yes, of course! Exactly as it should be. Do you think they should all get LIFE? Execution? The judges and prosecutors know what they're doing. They're following the law. Most of the crimes are misdemeanors. Trust the process.

7. Apparently it is well within guidelines for the actual crime that they're being convicted of.

That's your opinion, but you're not the judge or prosecutor. Apparently it is well within guidelines for the actual crime that they're being convicted of. They're doing the right thing, the legal thing... the fact that it doesn't give some people the revenge-based emotional satisfaction they'd hoped for is completely irrelevant.

13. No, that didn't happen. The man who beat a cop with a flag pole faces a FORTY YEAR sentence.

"Nice try" my ass. GMAFB The capitol rioters are being sentence appropriately. It all depends on the crime they're being charged with and whether there's enough evidence to convict them.

21. Never happen. Many of the other criminal TERRORISTS were facing several years in Prision

Now their all lining up to get their six month wrist slap. Many are just released with time served. Sure...a couple of years of probation which can be ended by a probation officer if they show up a couple of months in a row.

It's all BS and doesn't fit the CRIME. In another time in this Country those fucks would have been at the end of a rope by the end of the day for trying to overthrow a legal election and take over the Country and re-install a defeated President.

Oh but gosh...they were just on "tour",looking for bathrooms and wanting to shake hands with Pelosi and Pence so six months is plenty!!

16. Yeah! What's with that?

They entered our nation's capitol with the intent to kill the people inside because of their hate of people of color, and of Democrats. I'm pretty effing sick of our courts softpedaling this treason.

2. Such a sweet gentle face. He won't do well in prison.

When I read about things like this, I wonder if his parents are to blame... or are they blameless? Did the apple not fall far from the tree? Or was he corrupted by the internet, and other peers?

4. In the end he is responsible for his crimes. His parents are responsible for their own.

I know. But I think you missed the point of my query. What I wanted to know was if his parents planted the seeds of hatred, or if he found them on his own.

It's absurd for anyone to suggest that my question was an attempt to shift-blame.

14. He could be a Stephen Miller/Paul Goser type

Family pretty much disowns him because of what he becomes on his own.

17. His face looks like thousands of the SS einsatzgruppen that

spent the Second World War killing Jews. The faces in some of those old photos look positively angellic until you think about the monstrousness of what they did.

Racism is so very ugly. So ugly. No matter when or where - it is just ugly. This fellow will have plenty of time, though, either to repent of this misguided hate, or to nurse it until it is a red hot nugget that eats away at his very humanity.

As to his parents - I have some mixed feelings. People have to be taught to hate, Jackie, and the first people to teach them are the parents. So, yeah, in that sense, maybe they are responsible, at least to a degree.

But maybe not. He could have been seduced by online search engines that pay attention to what interests you and will take you down rabbit holes if you aren't careful. Before he knew it, he could have wandered down one of those rabbit holes and wound up someplace like Storm Front or the like.

Thank goodness he's off the streets now!
